60 Excellent Free 3D Model Websites 3D models represent a 3D object using a collection of points in 3D space, connected by various geometric entities. A free 3D model definitely can save your budget and deadline. On average, a modeler saves over 2 hours of modeling time when they could get a free 3D model. Today, 3D models are used in a wide variety of industries. The movie industry uses them as characters and objects for animated and real-life motion pictures. The video game industry uses them as assets for computer and video games.The architecture industry uses them to demonstrate proposed buildings and landscapes through Software Architectural Models. We understand how useful a 3D model could be. Note: Some of these 3D models have limited rights.

HTML+RDFa 1.1 - Second Edition A.1 History This section is non-normative. In early 2004, Mark Birbeck published a document named "RDF in XHTML" via the XHTML2 Working Group wherein he laid the groundwork for what would eventually become RDFa (The Resource Description Framework in Attributes). In 2006, the work was co-sponsored by the Semantic Web Deployment Working Group, which began to formalize a technology to express semantic data in XHTML. This technology was successfully developed and reached consensus at the W3C, later published as an official W3C Recommendation. While HTML provides a mechanism to express the structure of a document (title, paragraphs, links), RDFa provides a mechanism to express the meaning in a document (people, places, events). The document, titled "RDF in XHTML: Syntax and Processing" [xhtml-rdfa], defined a set of attributes and rules for processing those attributes that resulted in the output of machine-readable semantic data.

Why We Hate Infographics (And Why You Should) Those 2 guys invented the spreadsheet with Visicalc. I worship them for that. In 1989, during my first internship (don’t even dare asking), I discovered and toyed for days with a mind-blowing machine: an plotting table. It was like a printer, except that it was moving a dozen of color pencils over the paper, and it was meant to draw… graphs, as it was called in the 80′s. Then in the early 90′s, hipsters of that time decided that graphs weren’t cool enough, and called them charts. On an unrelated note, charts started being printed on regular printers, and boredom killed millions of interns. Then in the mid-00′s, the art of plotting/graphing/charting data was re-named… data visualization. So here it is: ‘data visualization’ is the new cool name for ‘chart’. But in the early 10′s, infographics emerged, and the man in the street started getting confused: “Well, he said, is infographics the new new new name for charts“? #4. “‘Sup? One guy means ‘not many’, while 10 guys means “many many”. #3.

He wanted to know if I did produce those graphs, and if he could mention then, in a post. It is possible to get a more minimalist one by plotting only cities with more than 100,000 unhabitants, e.g For the airports, it was slightly more complex since on 6,977 airports are mentioned. On the same website, one can find a dataset for ports, This is for graphs based on points. For roads, the shapefile can be downloaded from Last, but not least, for lakes, we need the polygons, Nice, isn’t it? Topics: big data,data set,maps,r,graphics

Rooks and rain Registration numbers The most common type of Museum number begins with the year of acquisition. The database standardises these numbers in the form, for example: 1887,0708.2427 (year: comma: block of four numbers - usually representing a month and day: full-stop and final number). The final number can be of any length and may be followed by another full-stop and a sub-number. In some cases the same number is shared by two or more objects across departments. In some of these cases a prefix has been added before a number (e.g. If the number you are entering has come from an old catalogue it could appear in the form 1887-7-8-2427. In the case of some two-dimensional works from Asia and the Middle East a full stop may need to be inserted into the final number. The second most common type of Museum number takes the form of one or two letters followed by two numbers.

7 Simple Deep Linking Tactics You Ought to Use Most people who work on the web…whether they are veteran SEOs or web content strategists…know about deep linking. They understand that it is all about linking internal pages. You link internal pages to other internal pages…and you get other sites to link to these internal pages But few of them actually understand the advanced tactics of deep linking that reduce visitor bounce rate while improving page views, time on site and even subscriber numbers. If you’d like to learn more about the importance of deep linking, deep linking tactics and when you should avoid deep linking…keep reading. Let’s do a quick little inbound link audit on your site. Before we get started, here’s a test. Hit enter and then click on the “Top Pages” tab: And then calculate the number of inbound links to your home page versus inbound links to all other pages on your site. What that means is people are not hitting internal pages. In fact, the higher you can get that ratio, the better. 3 reasons why you should deep link.

Machine Learning Algorithm Studying Fine Art Paintings Sees Things Art Historians Had Never Noticed — The Physics arXiv Blog The task of classifying pieces of fine art is hugely complex. When examining a painting, an art expert can usually determine its style, its genre, the artist and the period to which it belongs. Art historians often go further by looking for the influences and connections between artists, a task that is even trickier. So the possibility that a computer might be able to classify paintings and find connections between them at first glance seems laughable. And yet, that is exactly what Babak Saleh and pals have done at Rutgers University in New Jersey. These guys have used some of the latest image processing and classifying techniques to automate the process of discovering how great artists have influenced each other. The way art experts approach this problem is by comparing artworks according to a number of high-level concepts such as the artist’s use of space, texture, form, shape, colour and so on. So Saleh and co experiment with a number of different metrics. That is interesting stuff.

HTML5 Microdata Format Generator | Barry Ko Following up on a previous entry on the Microdata Format, I’ve created a completely free, for non-commercial purposes, Microdata Generator for some of the more popular item types: Books, Movies, People, Organizations and Companies, Stores, Restaurants, and Local Businesses. While there are other Microdata Generators and Creators out there, I haven’t found one that correctly nests multiple item types, or integrates the correct Hours of Operation (date/time) item property, which is essential for local businesses and restaurants. Furthermore, I’ve taken the extra step of giving you the option to include line breaks (for those who prefer the raw text format), the option to wrap the labels in a <span> tag, and the option to insert a class into the label span for custom css styling!
